Parkinson disease (PD) is the classic hypokinetic movement disorder and 1 of the most common and widely recognized neurodegenerative conditions. PD is distinct from parkinsonism. Parkinsonism refers to the syndrome of rest tremor, bradykinesia, rigidity, and postural instability. These symptoms are cardinal features of PD, but they are also present with other disorders.
